  • Habit #1: Learning everyday
    Habit #2: Reviewing my goals daily to always be sure I’m heading in the direction that I really want to go.

  • Some of us put others first because we are guided by our hearts. That can create problems and we do not realize we are sacrificing ourselves as a consequence. I saw a hypnosis therapist for a while to get over a phobia. At my last session he looked at me and said, “You talk about how you worry about family members and how you do things to help them in their situations. WHO IS LOOKING AFTER YOU?” That comment hit me like a ton of bricks. I’m learning to take better care of myself.

  • I always out housework and kids and spouse before doing the things I need for me (alone time, exercise, friends, etc) and it happens that I NEVER get to the me things. there are too many family and house things every daythey are neverending. I think I need to start putting me first, at the beginning of the day. I’m tired of losing myself to mostly mundane obligations.

  • Thank you Alex!! Thinking of who I want to be and who I really am inside really speaks to me. Deep inside I am a chill, thin, artsy, hippie chick. I’m 60 but feel like I’m still in my 20’s. Been too up tight type A my whole life denying my true self. Now I’m retired and this video has inspired me to reinvent myself and be who I want to be. And I’m finding this journey to be so energizing!!!

  • I’m still stuck at square one. Have you ever answered WHY we should put ourselves first? With approx. 7 billion people on the planet what would be the result of the philosophy of caring only for others but not ourselves? Only 1 person on the planet not caring for me.

  • That why don’t consider myself to type with one hand. Yes I forgot spelling of exercise. Funniest shit is that i knew spelling of priority.

  • I face a challenge that is to practice the hard parts slowly for weeks before I can actually play it. Often I just play it thru. I need to develope patience, consistency awareness and continuity. Now that I wrote it down I see clearly, which makes me think that my habit should write down things l know I need.

  • If you want to accelerate your fitness watch Eric Berg; I have already lost more then 60lbs but I still have some lingering health issues plus about 25-35lbs more to lose so really it will take me about 1-3 more years to get to full health.


  • Hey Steve. Great job as always.
    I’m pretty big into using rubber / resistance bands for toning, but one of my colleagues told me that working with free weights are equally important and my rubber bands don’t do 100% justice. He mentioned something about red muscle fiber and white muscle fiber and how I’m not getting the full benefit.
    Could you do a video and elaborate on this?
    I’m tone, but I’m not bulk. But I need to get some bulk (I’m finding) for safety’s sake.

  • Hey Alex so I’ve had this groin injury for a while about 4 weeks, and the doctor said to rest and ice, and it sucks that I can’t hit the gym, how can I loose weight without working out.

  • me personally I want to be the best future model of myself I can be. my music, writing drawings and singing and dancing & martial arts

  • Alex, I’ve been binge watching your videos and am strikingly surprised that you are covering some really deep material that resound in my personal life in ways which I would never expect someone on YouTube would be able to do so. Please keep up the good work because a lot of younger people or those around your age are making good use of your advices.

  • Habit #1: Pausing and asking myself why is this person making me angry and how can I best communicate with this person, for the best outcome for me and them.

    Habit 2: Not thinking people feel some way about me, like “oh he or she is mad at me for such and such.” If I feel like maybe someone feels some way, just asked them. That way I can deal with the issue or be relieved that it was all in my head.

  • I have problems in trying to dump my own beliefs, even if I know that that belief is causing me problems I find it hard to stop believing in it. How can I persuade myself to believe something different?

  • Oh I wish I could do that and look like you I have a gut so big and I can’t seem to get rid of it it happened when I had my bladder surgery and everything has gone crazy help me please

  • Awesome video Steve!:) I want more consistency with my exercise. I’m gonna follow your advice on putting exercise in my calendar. I work from home as well, and its so easy to forget and put it off unless I make it a priority.
